Cu Chi Tunnels

Hidden in the outskirts of Saigon, the vast Cu Chi complex is a 75-mile long maze of narrow underground tunnels which took 20 years to build.  Once used by the Viet Cong as an underground base to evade anti-communist forces and move supplies, the tunnels were only accessible through tiny camouflaged trap doors.  

 

We include a visit to the tunnels which are now part of the memorial park. If you’re daring, crawl in to experience the tunnels up close!


Independence Palace

The Independence Palace, also known as "Reunification Palace" is a landmark in Ho Chi Minh City and built on the site of the former "Norodom Palace." It was the site of the end of the Vietnam War during the Fall of Saigon on April 30, 1975, when a North Vietnamese Army tank crashed through its gates.


Notre Dame Cathedral

Sitting across the street from the Post Office, the red façade of the Notre Dame Cathedral is another reminder of the era of French domination in Vietnam. Built between 1877-1883, this Roman and Gothic style Cathedral used only materials that were shipped in from France. 


Saigon Central Post Office

The Saigon Central Post Office is the oldest post office in Vietnam. This fully functioning post office was designed by Gustave Eiffel, the architect who also designed the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Resembling a European Art Deco train station, the walls of the post office is decorated with historical maps of Vietnam. Don’t forget to send a postcard from the post office when you get there! 


Thien Mu Pagoda

Built in the 1600s, Thien Mu Pagoda is the tallest in Vietnam and is recognized as the unofficial symbol of Hue when it was an Imperial Capital.

 

The Citadel & Imperial City

A UNESCO World Heritage site, this walled fortress served as the Imperial Palace during the peak of the Hue Imperial Era. While often compared to the Forbidden City of Beijing, Hue’s Imperial Ruins have their unique architectural history and are said to be some of the most beautiful structures in Vietnam.


Tomb of Emperor Tu Duc

One of Hue’s most tranquil sights, the tomb and gardens serve as a memorial for Emperor Tu Duc, regarded as the last Emperor of Vietnam.


Hoi An Ancient Town

Having the rare distinction of escaping the destruction of Vietnam’s wartime, Hoi An retains a sense of history more than anywhere else in the country. Known for its classic charm, the Old Town of Hoi An has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage site.


36 Old Streets and Guilds (Old Quarter)

In the 13th century, Hanoi’s 36 guilds established the quarter, each taking a different street. The 36 streets still remain today varying from Incense Street & Fish Street to Silversmith Street & Buddhist Altars and Statues Street.


Hanoi Water Pupetry

Distinctive and unique, the Vietnamese Water Puppetry dates back to the 11th century. It takes place in a waist deep pool of water with puppeteers controlling the puppets from below the water.  How the water puppet show works is a secret guarded for centuries. Puppeteers use their dialect and code words to prevent outsiders from understanding their techniques. The performance usually depicts rural traditions such as rice planting, fishing, and village folklores. It is said this performing art is the best expression of Vietnamese culture.


Ha Long Bay

This magnificent UNESCO world heritage site is one of Vietnam’s natural marvels with thousands of limestone islands rising out of an emerald green sea. Staying overnight on a luxurious Paradise Cruise allows us to savor the evening and early morning views of the magnificent bay. Enjoy various onboard activities and offshore excursions. 


Ho Chi Minh Stilt House

Ho Chi Minh, the President of North Vietnam, lived in a modest stilt house from 1858 until his death in 1969. Constructed in the corner of the Presidential Palace gardens, the house is surrounded by lush green and faces a carp pond. Modeled after traditional Vietnamese houses, the stilt house only contains two rooms and no bathroom.


Ba Dinh Square

The famous square of Hanoi where Ho Chih Minh declared independence from the South in 1945. Today, Ho Chi Minh’s body is housed in the Mausoleum in the center of the square.
